The issues of child abuse and endangerment have been at the forefront of the public awareness ever since 13 children were discovered shackled and held captive in a Perris, California, home last January.

"It's shocking, it really is. If she did that, then that's out of character for her", one neighbor said. Neighbors are shocked. They say Leimome Cheeks is a very nice woman and they can't believe she did something like this.

Skylark Blake told the local news outlet that Cheeks is "a nice lady" and he 'can't see her doing that'.

"I think she needs some help. For them to be in the hot vehicle like that in cages is sad", one neighbour said.

Police said the children were OK after the incident.

Cheeks is expected to appear in court Monday at 9 a.m.
